"It's essential to recognize, appreciate, and encourage our agents and peers on a regular basis," said Sue Lowe, senior vice president for Chase International. "It gives them something to strive for, and allows other agents to see what's possible. We are consistently producing the top agents in the region."

Chase International is a longtime, avid supporter of the preservation of the Thunderbird Lodge. Shari Chase, founder and president of the esteemed real estate company, handled the sale of the historic estate in 1998.

Representing mutual fund tycoon Jack Dreyfus, she was integral in navigating the complicated sale, which at the time marked the largest residential sale in the nation at $50 million.

Chase was on hand at the quarterly meeting to relay her personal and professional affiliations with the property.

"Shari Chase has incomparable drive and passion," Lowe said. "Our company is ever-growing, so for our agents to vividly see and hear such an amazing success story, it's inspiring."
